  • Did they explain how dangerous a tubal pregnancy is? It's potentially fatal. Being in your tubes does not mean you will miscarry if it's ignored.

  • you have to have surgery and have it removed...if it ruptures, you could bleed to death...did they not explain that to you?? I've done ectopic pregnancies in the middle of the night in surgery and have almost lost plenty of people due to rupture and bleeding.

  • I nearly died from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy....if you don't have it removed you will still have to have surgery when it ruptures...unless you die before they can help you.

  • Mine dissolved on it`s own and I didn`t need surgery or the methotextrate shot, but it can be super dangerous. Please get it resolved!

  • Not only could you die from this, but if you do survive you could become infertile because of it. I suggest getting it resolved, I am surprised they didn't tell you all this.
